Among the northernmost cities on Earth, Anchorage is a place with big-city amenities: fine restaurants, museums, shops, theaters, and an excellent music scene. It is also home to Alaska’s largest college, the University of Alaska Anchorage. Creating the backdrop are the salmon-rich waters of Cook Inlet and the 5,000-foot-plus peaks of Chugach State Park. Within a short drive from downtown are dozens of wilderness adventures, and a short plane ride opens up the possibility of almost any type adventure – that’s one reason why Anchorage’s Lake Hood is the world’s busiest floatplane base. Anchorage’s more than 290,000 residents embrace both the urban amenities and the surrounding wilderness.
Anchorage enjoys a relatively mild climate by Alaska standards, with summer temperatures in the mid-60s to low-70s, and winter temperatures in the 10s and 20s. Like the rest of Alaska, summer days are long in Anchorage, with 22 hours of sunlight on Summer Solstice on June 21. The shortest day of the year is Winter Solstice on December 21, with 5.5 hours of daylight. It’s best to bring plenty of layers as weather conditions can change in Anchorage very quickly. Anchorage is in the Alaska Time Zone (1 hour behind Pacific Time Zone, 2 hours behind Mountain, 3 hours behind Central, and 4 hours behind Eastern) and observes Daylight Savings.
THINGS TO DO:
Warmed by a maritime climate, you can spend the day fishing Ship Creek downtown, hiking the nearby mountains, photographing glaciers, and dining at a four-star restaurant. Anchorage is a top destination in both summer and winter, with activities, festivals, tours, and amenities available year-round.
Looking for a full time technologist to service one account in Anchorage Alaska. There are three neurosurgeons who primarily do spine, but there is opportunity to train and do advanced cases with support from our Seattle based team. These surgeons currently use monitoring about 2-3 days a week and the facility is not a trauma center. There will be minimal travel as the need for a full time tech there is year round.
